Kindergarden at Little Wombles

%PM, %07 %625 %2019 %14:%Nov

At Little Wombles we really value the importance of outdoor education and learning about the world around us. Nicky recently wrote an article for The Inter Schools Advertiser which outlined the impact of Kindergarden, one of our weekly specialist sessions.

Kindergarden has made such a positive impact on our children and contributes to their development across all areas of The Early Years Foundation stage.

The Tiger who came to tea!

%AM, %22 %380 %2019 %08:%Oct

On the 5th of October we had a very special visitor as we read The Tiger who came to tea! The home corner was set up as Sophie’s kitchen and we acted out the story together as the tiger arrived.
During the day there were so many fun activities related to the story for the children to take part in and all the children came dressed up as Jungle animals. There was jigsaws, tiger biscuit making, face painting, orange play-doh to make jungle animals with, making spider cup-cakes and jam scones and there was a focus on the colours orange and black. What a busy day it was!

  • Babies visit to Battersea Children's Zoo

    %AM, %22 %364 %2019 %07:%Oct

    On the 5th of October our babies visited Battersea Children’s Zoo. The whole Nursery have been learning about The Jungle so it was great for them to be able to see some monkeys, birds, snakes and spiders!
    They also loved watching the otters and meerkats being fed and thought the Emus were very funny.
    They practised making lots of animal sounds as we watched the pigs, sheep, miniature ponies and the donkey.

  • Food Around the World

    %AM, %22 %361 %2019 %07:%Oct

    On the 1st October we finished our Around the World topic with a feast. Many of our children brought in delights from countries around the world that they or members of their family are connected to.
    A particular favorite was the Haggis! The children loved it! There were also Welsh cakes, Italian biscuits, Danish sandwiches, German sausage, French omelette, American pumpkin pie, Devon Cream Tea to name a few of the delicious items the children tried. We were certainly full up afterwards!
    It was such fun taking a trip around the world with these foods and learning where different foods are from. Thank you so much to all the parents that contributed to make this afternoon a success!

  • Pre-school visit to the Sea Life Centre

    %AM, %31 %368 %2019 %07:%Jul

    To end our Under the Sea topic the Pre-schoolers visited the London Sea Life Centre. What a great day we had. We saw so many amazing kinds of fish. We touched star fish, marvelled at the amazing coloured jelly fish, were a little bit wary of the sharks and thought the sea-horses were very cute! The giant turtles were wonderful as were all the different types of rays. We learnt a lot of new names for sea creatures and were very interested to find out where in the world the species can be found.

  • Home grown!

    %PM, %30 %657 %2019 %14:%Jul

    Over the past months in our Studio Cultivate sessions we have had great success in growing our own produce. We have planted seeds to grow tomatoes, sun flowers, peas and many kinds of flowers. At the end of each session the children are able to take home seeds that they have planted and try to carry on the growing at home. Take a look at the amazing Job one of our children has done!

  • Sports Day!

    %PM, %15 %578 %2019 %12:%Jul

    Tuesday 9th July 2019 was Little Wombles very first Sports Day! What a great afternoon. After weeks of practise the children took part in many events such as the sack race, egg and spoon race, an obstacle course balencing challenges, running races and much more. We were so impressed at how well the children participated, even our youngest babies took part! It was a fantastic family event, with a wonderful turn out, finishing with a picnic tea. This will definitely be a yearly event at Little Wombles going forward!

  • Transport trip

    %PM, %17 %596 %2019 %13:%Jun

    For the month of May the children were learning all about Transport. We took a trip on the bus to Battersea Heleport. We watched lots of helicopters come and go from the terrace of  The Crown Plaza Hotel. From here we could  also see many boats on the river and aeroplanes flying overhead. On our journey we had lots of fun spotting taxis, cars, motorbikes, vans, trains and much more!

  • People who help us

    %PM, %12 %661 %2019 %14:%Mar

    Our Topic for February was People who help us and what a busy month it was! We had lots of discussions about all the people in our lives who help us from family members to Doctors, Teachers, Vets, Emergency services and many many more! We had exciting visits from parents telling us about their jobs and we had our annual visit to Wandsworth Fire Station. The fire fighters were fantastic, the children were able to climb in the fire engine, hear the sirens and see the flashing blue lights. They tried on the helmets and even had a go on the hoses!

    To finish the topic we had a visit from the police! They brought their police van so we had great fun pretending to drive it and the children tried on different types of hats and looked at some of their equipment.

  • Pre-school visit to the Natural History Museum

    %AM, %01 %507 %2019 %11:%Feb

    On Tuesday 29th January the Pre-schoolers visited The Natural History Museum to see the dinosaurs!

    We had such fun. We saw the skull of a plant-eating Triceratops, an Iguanodon and the Baryonyx - one of the largest meat-eaters unearthed in Europe and don't forget the giant, scary, moving T-REX!   ROAR!!

    This concluded our project on Dinosaurs and the children loved telling the rest of the nursery all about their trip when they returned.
